Twitter tip - monitor conversations
The following tip was provided by Michael Volkin, author of Social
Networking for Authors (available at http://www.sellatonofbooks.com):
With http://www.Monitter.com you can type in various keywords to find
what people are tweeting about. For example, if your book is on military
basic training, you can use various keywords like basic training, boot
camp, drill sergeants, etc. When someone tweets with those phrases,
you can see the tweet in real time and begin to communicate with that
Note from John: To converse directly with someone, send them a
tweet which begins with that person's profile name. For example:
@johnkremer I noticed you are heading for basic training. For some tips
on how to survive basic training, see http://mybasictrainingsite.com.
Or you can be less commercial and more specific by sending them to a
specific page that answers one of their questions.
